Ed Skoog is offering Intro to Poetry Writing. With poetically-appropriate complexity, his class description states, “Previous experience with poetry isn’t required, although all levels are welcome.”
Ooooooooo. I met with Ed (for a fiction piece) during his term as Hugo House Writer in Residence. Of the numerous gems he dropped my way, he said, “Fiction happens in the paragraph.” He encouraged me to reconsider how I approach line breaks. And he was right—my graphs began to happen. I bet he could happen-up your poetry.
Snow Falling on David Guterson is teaching something whose description has something to do with poetry. Poets out there, a little help?
